Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine 2015
The Eurographics Association organizes a biannual competition to acknowledge the contribution that computer graphics is playing in the medical field, and to encourage further development. Originally called "Eurographics Medical Prize”, the competition was renamed to “Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine” in 2010 — in honor of Dirk Bartz who passed away far too early in March 2010.
Dirk Bartz was a highly recognized and enthusiastic scientist, teacher and promoter of Visual Computing in Medicine. Furthermore, he was an active member of the Eurographics Association and Chair of the EG Medical Prize 2007 and 2009.
Submissions for the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine 2015 are being invited from researchers and developers who can demonstrate that a particular benefit has resulted from the use of computer graphics technology in a medical application that they have produced. Examples of entries could include the use of new data visualization techniques, interaction methods, or virtual/augmented environments.
Winning Entries and Prices
The top three winning entries of the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine 2015 will receive a prize and their submission will be published in the ‘Short Papers and Medical Prize Awards’ digital media proceedings. The judging panel will select the winning entry on the basis of its clinical value, use made of computer graphics, and novelty. To see previous awardees please refer to the hall of fame.
